What goes into making a good luxury car? A smooth, cosseting ride, for one thing; another is the use of the finest materials throughout. There should be a powerful engine, too, with oodles of torque for any given situation, and perhaps an arsenal of technology and toys to ease the burden of travel. An involving driving experience wouldn’t go amiss either.

Believe it or not, you don’t have to pay the earth to find a car that has all of these things. Buying used can land you the luxury car of your dreams for less than you might think. To prove it, here are our 10 favourite used luxury cars, with links to examples you can actually buy in the What Car? Classifieds – and we’ve even thrown in a couple you should avoid for good measure.
